News From Our Growers:

Short Mountain Cultures: Product Highlight this week, what is beet kvass? It’s a delicious savory probiotic beverage! Tastes salty and sour like kraut with the earthiness of beets. Start with a 2 ounce shot or add to salad dressing, seltzer, or other juices or smoothies. “This drink is valuable for its medicinal qualities and as a digestive aid. Beets are just loaded with nutrients. One 4 oz glass, morning and night is an excellent blood tonic, cleanses the liver and is a good treatment for kidney stones…” -Sally Fallon in Nourishing Traditions. Short Mountain Culture offers several different flavors of veggie kvass including beet, ginger beet, golden beet and kimchi juice.
